Herbalife is adding another component to its LA Galaxy sponsorship with the Herbalife Nutrition Player of the Month award.
The Los Angeles-based company has partnered with Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy for the past decade. As the club’s jersey sponsor, Herbalife is a regular presence both on and off the field. The latest collaboration between the nutrition company and the five-time MLS Cup champions will recognize standout performances by individual Galaxy players.
Beginning this week, soccer fans have the chance to cast their vote for the Herbalife Nutrition Player of the Month, from a lineup of three Galaxy nominees. Alongside the award, the organizations are introducing the Herbalife Player of the Month Sweepstakes for participating fans. Each month’s sweepstakes winner will receive four VIP tickets to one of the club’s 2017 home games, as well as a meet and greet with the Player of the Month.
“The passion and on-field commitment of these elite athletes is inspiring, and we are proud to partner with their fans to recognize the players’ accomplishments,” said Michael O. Johnson, Herbalife Chairman and CEO. “These top performers require balanced nutrition and hydration, and as the official nutrition partner of the LA Galaxy, we are honored to meet that need.”
Fan voting is now open for nominees Romain Alessandrini, Clement Diop and Dave Romney, whose contributions helped the Galaxy secure key wins in March. Voting closes Wednesday, and the first-ever Herbalife Nutrition Player of the Month will be announced Thursday, April 6.
